Nothing spells relaxation quite like finding your zen in yoga…topped off with a tasty gin, does it?
If this sounds like your kind of exercise, you can head down to the Big Big Gin Festival next month.
The organisers have unveiled plans for a series of “Gin and Yin” yoga sessions to ensure festival-goers leave feeling totally refreshed.
Led by expert yoga instructor, Syra Fleetwood, visitors will raise a glass and a leg – hopefully not at the same time – practicing restorative yin yoga moves while sampling crafted gin.
Suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike, Syra explains “Gin and Yin at the Big Big Gin Festival will be a fun experience, but also a deeply nourishing practice that will leave you feeling calm and grounded”.
As well as sampling gin throughout the class, participants will finish up with a gin cocktail at the end of the session – because why not?
And that’s not all, gin-lovers can try out a range of masterclasses and meet the makers at the festival. There will also be food, live music, face-painting, a selfie wall and even a photobooth.
The Big Big Gin Festival will take place on 12-13 October at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange.
Gin and Yin yoga sessions will take place between 12-1:30pm and 7-8:30pm on Saturday, and 12-1:30pm on Sunday. Tickets cost £30 and can .
You can upgrade to £40.00 tickets to get access to the actual Big Big Gin Festival after the session.
